In 2009, the Jefferson County Board of Supervisors called upon WGK, Inc., to design 2 new structures that would replace the bridges at Violet Road and Lucky Hollow Road as a single project under the MDOT Office of State Aid Road Construction. WGK responded with an environmental assessment and hydraulic analysis that were incorporated into the preliminary and final designs, and staying on-site throughout the project to administer construction engineering and inspection. Additionally, WGK is meeting all State Aid requirements by performing all materials testing and filing daily inspection reports.
The two structures were designed and built to meet design criteria set forth by the Mississippi Department of Transportation. Currently, the $ 600,000 project is under construction and scheduled to be completed in early 2015.
